Any gopher control Hawaiaan Gardens Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same thing as a gopher. Most destruction will be to new plants because they’re immature, un-established but it would not take a good deal gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Turf can also be seriously effected by gophers with destruction from both feeding on the grass and the dirt forced on top as well as staying on the grass which usually smothers it.

Big trees will take chewing for a while so not to worry. Smaller trees might be destroyed because of a gopher right away because of the roots offering the life to the tree are young. You will see certain limbs of trees or bushes begin to die out when ever gophers are destroying them. This is the result of the roots giving life for that part of the plant is impaired or destroyed by the gopher and no longer providing life for that part of the plant that you are growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day leading to why you want to remove gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your lawn.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Turf is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed up and staying on the lawn which kills it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to dry out when gophers are eating it.  This is caused by the roots giving life to that part of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed experts like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the hardware store which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher concentration and effective than what is available to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the knowledge of what method to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to flush them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the whole crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the hole.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to think about about the cost of water in Hawaiaan Gardens and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Hawaiaan Gardens available at the present time that have been proved to provide good Gopher Removal. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer relief, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keep gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower beds can be protected by attaching a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth under the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame prior to adding soil in your yard.
